Caravela / Virmax is a vertically integrated coffee company with staff on the ground in the origins that we work in. The majority of our team members are in the field working with coffee producers every day of the year. You will not meet them at the SCAA Expo or the WBC. They don’t regularly tweet, and do not have instagram and facebook accounts. Yet, they are a fundamental part of our team as they work to help create and identify exceptional coffees.
This week we are starting a Profile Series of posts where we intend to bring these people closer to you, in our translated words and in their own direct words (in Spanish). These are producers, quality analysts, promotores, and others… passionate coffee people with interesting stories that we would like to share with you, and who deserve recognition for the invaluable work that they do.
To kick off the Profile Series, we have Audenar Guzman, a producer from La Plata, Huila and also a PECA promotor. Audenar works with 30 of his neighbors to bring them knowledge and best practices he has acquired through the program. Read his post here.
